12.5% and right now, president obama is calling out the gop for what he says is your party to extend long-term unemployment benefits. take a look at what he says. >> for decades, congress has voted to offer relief to job seekers, including when the unemployment rate is lower than it is today, but now, that economic lifeline is in jeopardy all because republicans in this congress, which is on track to be the most unproductive in history, have so far refused to extend it. >> senator, let me ask you a direct question. do you personally, do you support extending unemployment benefits or would you let 1.3 million americans lose those benefits before the end of the year? >> i do support unemployment benefits for the 26 weeks that they're paid for. if you extend it beyond that, you do a disservice to these workers. there was a study that came out a few months ago and it said if you have a worker that's been unemployed for four weeks and on unemployment insurance, every employer, nearly 100%, said they will always hire the person who's been out of work four weeks. when you allow people to be

not avoid trouble. >> there are a lot of golf analogies we could talk about. ben's right, obama dropped the ball on this. it doesn't surprise me he may have only met with her once beuse he certainly didn't do anything else he needed to do to make this rollout a success. look, obama care, said this before, is a good policy. the implementation is horrific. >> poorly executed. the nebraska senator who's now heading up all these insurance commissioners, he was telling me, i thought it was revealing, that they did wince at the time when the president said, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. i said, i don't remember you saying that at the time. he said, we did relay to the white house, i don't know who in the white house, that this was not feasible. there's a lot of liny covering here. i'm wondering if it's all part of the same story. of not keeping in contact with the health and human services secretary, the secretary not following up on warnings presumably from those in congress who were getting leery, something that could never happen. >> it was a complete failure to commun

is because of obama care. that's part of obama care. you know that, right? >> the point is he's not going to get their dollars and cents. >> that's correct. >> so this whole little framework that he's made, this house of cards, isn't going to stand up, bob. that's the problem. where's the money coming from? >> bring your ideas down. and i say yes, sir, brothers. bring your ideas down. come to the table. bring your things -- eric, you come on down here and give us your ideas. kimberly, you come, too. >> here's a good one. >> across state lines. tax reform and tort reform. >> make it attractive. come on. >> health savings accounts. which are tax-free dollars, so if you decide you want to go to a chiropractor and your health insurance doesn't cover that, your money can go to pay for that rather than the government. >> that's a funny thing. you're right. a free market idea is incredibly simple. it works in every other industry, but it's overcomplicated by thousands of pages of bureaucratic nonsense that keeps people in their professions. >> rather than try and say what's your other idea, we h
's right. god help us. the pope is like president obama. this dangerous duo spends their time striving for a better world of equality, faith and freedom. it sounds terrifying, doesn't it? and the hits just keep on coming. that fox column goes on to say, quote, just as president obama has been a disappointment for america, pope francis will prove a disaster for the catholic church. right. so let's just get this. this is the pope who's already reinvigorating a church with more than a billion members. he's called on catholics to more closely follow the teachings of a little book i like to call the bible when it comes to focusing oncalled out the failures of trickle down economics. reportedly snuck outside at night to wash the feet of the homeless. that's the guy. it was put best in a washington post column. limbaugh is right. somebody did get to pope francis. it was jesus. although i keep wondering if what conservatives are really angry about is that the pope's focus on the poor undermines their agenda of tax cuts for the wealthy, demonizing on social issues and cutting food stamps for ki
are seeing $15 an hour and a right to form a union. in washington president obama is making income in equality one of the pieces of his second term agenda. >> the idea that a child may never escape that poverty because she lumberjacks a decent education or a health care or a community that views her future as their own it should offend all of us. the combined trends of declining mobility it poses a threat to our way of life. what drives me as a zbroond, a son, a father, as an american is to make sure that every striving hard-working optimistic kid in america has the same incredible chance that this country gave me. >> the current minimum wage is $7.25, adjusted for inflation. that's more than $3 less than the minimum wage was back in 1968. president obama said he'll support a senate bill to increase the minimum wage to $10.10 but not going to be easy. >> what would the prospects of that be not only in the senate but the house? >> they are not good. it would be easier to do that than to increase taxes on the wealthy at this point in time because that's been ruled off the table by co
obama will be our guest. yours and mine on this show. he's agreed to sit with me before a big group of college students. that's right. the "hardball" college tour is back big time. and the biggest headliner, the president of the united states. we're going to be hitting my biggest questions with the president before the students of american university. my questions will be the very ones you and i talk about here every night. this destructive politics we're facing in this country, this inability to strike compromise and how we can fix it, this failure of tough personal accountability in government as viewed through the lens of the health care rollout, the attempts out there to suppress the minority vote in three dozen states, and the life and death matters of war and peace. you know where i stand on these matters. you know where you stand. and two nights from now, this thursday at this very time we'll know where the president stands. on "hardball" tonight, escalation. the attack of the wacko birds. running out of ammo, the right wing has gone to ringing the bugle louder. it's not enou
: hi. think obama is a little bit nonchalant about health care. if we cannot appeal this lot right now, wait until he gets out of office and then appeal law. too many people are suffering. thank you. host: should someone be fired? rose, are you there? daniel, washington, dc. democrat. what do you think? should the president hold somebody accountable and fire someone? i think the people he would fire, he does not have the executive reach to do. this is a republican chief justice that voted -- that had the swing vote. essentially it is insurance reform. he does not have the reach to fire insurance company executives. moderatelydly, republican health care reform -- it is getting a little bit more insurance for a little but more people. he is trying to exercise measure and judgment to see it follow- through. staying the course and policy is ihis think what he should do. on your point about the politics, that is the headline in the wall street journal. report -- it says later on in the article gavea recent poll republicans a narrow edge on the question of which party voters would like to se
and obamacare is getting plowed left and right as >>> the bulldozers are out and obama care is get being plowed left and right. and now on the record is taking you inside those hearings. but first, the oversight committee. >> we had a several hour hearing, and i still can't tell you who was responsible for the website. i can tell you it's not the president. it's not kathleen sebelius. it's not any of the people you would think would be responsible, and there are no consequences, or if there are, i haven't seen them today. >> and down the hall, and inside the energy and commerce hearing,
care act, obama care right now and people are talking about it all over the country and it's a great opportunity for republicans. for to us have a huge year like we did in 1994 we'll have to have the sort of alternatives that bill is talking about. do you hear that, whether it's republican governor's association or in washington now, there is that understanding. i would be stunned if you didn't see a variety of alternatives. >> david gregory for those running for re-election and all the negative messages that are in this narrative right now in terms of obama care how fair are they and how hard of a slog will it be for the white house to try to turn this around? >> i think it will be difficult. ultimately they have to prove successful with the website. they have to have more positive stories that flood the marketplace and the media. look at story after story, morning after morning we're having this conversation of what the difficulties are, what the andy poling is, what we simply are confused by. they are going the need so much success even that's going to lag before they get to a pla
was a communist, this man. he was a communist. >> i would make the argument that we have a great injustice right now in the country with an ever-increasing size of government that's taking over and controlling people's lives and obama care is front and center of that. >> yes! he just compared fighting the health care law to fighting aparthe apartheid. >>> a freedom fighter, a radical, a disrupter of the highest order. his birth name means pulling branches of a tree and pull he did. president mandela not only freed a nation, he reminded the world of our common humanity. he put the good of the south african people, all south africans, above all else. over the course of his 27 years in prison, mandela wisely used his time to prepare, to plan and to embrace both forgiveness and reconciliation. he learned to let go of hatred for other people, recognizing that one of the true evils of apartheid is how it turned people against one another. in the first press conference, 1990, mandela was himself moved by the broader change that had begun to take place in his absence. >> it's a totally different south a
're having this huge argument right now. and i think partly because the obama administration about whether the profit incentive is even relevant in today's world. >> i think that's a fair point. i think it's a very important argument to have. by the way, higher education, the for profit guys are the ones paying taxes, both property and income taxes, whereas the not for property guys are the ones receiving subsidies. as far as i'm concerned, money is money. the only difference in private and public money is ideological. you draw a line between the two. public money becomes purer -- >> but it's worth ten cents on the dollar. >> i don't disagree with you. >> you're one of the old democrats. you're looking around saying what am i. >> i don't -- by the way, it's sort of what we were talking about earlier with iran. i don't think it's a question of choosing one or the other. i think you need to have a healthy balance of both. but if you start off with a regulatory bias against the for profit sector. >> you do. >> i understand, i don't disagree. >> i'm appealing to you, stand up and be -- >> i'm
. >>> and right now, president obama and his administration is stagger is a full-out bliss to get people to sign up for the affordable care act. a blitz that is. coming up, a look at what you may be seeing is or hearing the next three weeks. >>> the mayors race in >>> our tom sherwood is following up on a story he was first to report yesterday. mayor vincent gray is running for reelection. many people have been wondering for more than a year if he would seek a second term. federal prosecutors are still looking into his 2010 campaign. four people pleaded guilty to running a shadow campaign that helped him get elected. gray, though, is not facing any charges. >> our record speaks for itself. look at the fiscal stability, education, the way people are getting back to work. >> some of gray's opponents are already criticizing him for running again. tommy wells says the mayor doesn't deserve a second chance because he ran a corrupt campaign. >> and new, vice president joe biden is taking a stance against china's air defense zone. earlier today he held a press conference. biden told the u.s. he is deep
, that op-ed he wrote is an early shot. another piece you have up there this morning, president obama juggling legislative issues right now. republicans, though, going back after health care as we head into 2014. that's really where the focus is going to be for his opponents, isn't it? >> sure s. willie the white house got more excited reaction from liberals, the left democrats and maybe they expected earlier this week when they said on "morning joe" that every day this month up until the deadline that the president was going to be focusing on health care. people got very excited about it. the supporters loved it. but the president has a lot else on his plate. this is a multi-tasking month today. the president is talking about income in equality at 11:15. he will be talking about immigration he has foreign policy and heads up to hawaii at the end of the month. the president has a ton going on t. supporters think there is good news, maybe the website is steadying now want more of the president every day. >> obviously, the republicans will not let up despite they may be setting up polit
for obama there saying next year we will have some sort of bipartisan plan on voting rights. i took a step back. are we sure it's going to be bipartisan? are we sure there will be meaningful bipartisan plan. everything i have seen tells me there may be a plan next year. i'm hard pressed to see where it's bipartisan. >> we are saying an eternally hopeful, optimistic president who knows full well that whoever, and especially he's for it, is going to be impossible to get age done. the republicans have made it clear on any issue from the bucket, economy, jobs, health care, immigration you name it they will stand in the way of quote giving him a win. they don't want him to succeed. as we know, there have been two books wren that republicans collude before he was inaugurated to insure he would not be successful. so a president's job is to be hopeful and optimistic. that's what the president is being here, but that's not to say that he shouldn't try. because the president, while hopeful and optimistic. he's dealing with all these obstruction and impediments, he has to try, otherwise why be in the
of opportunities to push him on these big questions about obama care and other programs, right? >> you know, honestly when i've been interviewed i would rather somebody ask me hard questions because you can knock one out of the park when it's a fastball across the shoulder. if somebody is just lobbing things down in the dirt, which -pis what mathews essentially d, it makes both of them frankly look less than they should. >> have you ever watched obama get a tough question. one of our reporters asked him a tough question and he looked so outraged he couldn't talk. >> bret baier did the question with him and bret was pressing him, it was respectful, but doing the job of a real journalist and you could see obama bristoling with indignation, how dare him push me. >> maybe that's why the presidents are sort of going on lockdown now. talking about this earlier on the show they don't want the hard questions and therefore, having press conferences not even meeting with reporter mitt romney got testy with bret asking him tough questions. >> i'm going to start getting testy with you guys. obama has d
taken center stage. >>> the website had one million visitors on monday, but can obama care reach its goal of getting seven million people signed up by march? we're doing the math and getting wonky with ezra klein coming up. on the table by not choosing the right medicare d plan. no one could have left this much money here. 3w4r 3w4r57. >>> republicans are not backing off on their appeals to repair obama care. at a white house event touting the fixes and the benefits of the affordable care act, president obama drew a line in the sand. >> i've always said i will work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. you got good ideas? bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> let's bring in senator pat toomey, republican from pennsylvania and a remember of the budget and finance committees. good to see you, senator. thanks for coming in. let me start with your reaction to what's going on with obama care, because the white house says they're making progress. monday alone a million unique views. the pages are loading faster, people are
or not they are receiving or getting paid. >> they are getting paid or whether or not the insured is insured under obama care. >> and back to the previous question here. if you think you have signed up and enrolled and done everything right and find out in january and february that something was missing and fell through the cracks. are you loibl for the fine? >> that is a clear implication here. in this case, it is buyer beware on so many levels. and where there seems to be usually with this administration great compunction and care for justice, there seems to be next to none when it comes to obama care. there is a danger in focusing on the technical issues that are with the flawed and fundmentally loused up website. and on the political issues here. the fact is, americans who are relying now on obama care for health care insurance, don't know if they are indeed insured or whether or not the system is working for them. the bigger questions is how in the world will we pay for it all? >> that comes for 2014 and beyond. we'll see you later on and so how the president explains this, to. >> private sector ve

they discover it. >> we're going to let you go and maybe obama care covers that throat exam you're going to need. >> you're right. >> listen, the economic freedom plan, the zone, the plan sounds great. thank you very much for joining us and letting us break that exclusive news. >> thank you. >> our catching in crew is here and ready to roll. is an obama care bailout already in the works? the white house offering insurance companies something you probably never heard about but should. >>> first it was broken promises over keeping your doctor and your health plan. now this. >> no more taxpayer funded bailouts, period. >> this week the white house quietly offering insurance companies another obama bailout. it would offset costs for reinstating policies cancelled due to the health care law. this is on top of a trillion dollars we're giving insurers to offer more affordable coverage. michelle, guess who is going to pay for another bailout. >> here he is basically buying out insurance companies on top of providing them with a trillion dollars in subsidies for the next ten years and now we learn about

their best on-line day ever on monday and what is the stock doing? >> yeah, i think that president obama is calling wal-mart right now for tips. wal-mart is down 1/10 of 1%, record on-line sales for cyber monday for wal-mart, ever. so that's a very big deal. but this really trended over from the thanksgiving, to the black friday and then into monday. stuart: okay. didn't we nearly put j.c. penney on death watch? yes, we. >> oh, yeah. stuart: we almost did. strong november sales sending the stock higher. by the way, this is a charles payne pick, down 2% now. we were thinking that charles would do a victory lap later, but i don't know about that. it's down 2% on strong sales. interesting. we've got some bad pr for google of all people. a group called consumer you search for items using google's shopping fever, instead of a competing search engine, you'll likely pay more. i'm saying there's no impact on the stock. it's down a buck on a $1,000 item. is the u.s. economy growing? it's slowly down, is it growing? is that bad for stocks? shah galani and liz macdonald are with me. all right, stro

's utterly embarrassing for the president not to have put together the right technical website operation. i'm going to put aside i think it's a lousy product. you know that. i oppose obama care. but i want to go back to this whole technical issue of the screw up around the website. question number one, mr. deinz has come in as the savior and putting this back together in some shape or form. why didn't they go to a guy like zients to quarterback this operation in the first place because, as i'm sure you would agree, the political catastrophic downfall of obama because of this website has been just completely off the charts. if they had done this right with a quarterback, you know, zients is a talented guy. why didn't they start there? >> you got me, larry. i agree with you completely that the past two months -- my job has been much more difficult because there that's been significant political fallout from fact that this website has been a mess. that the launch has been riddled with and made all our jobs much more difficult on the side of people who support obama care. no question whatsoever
